I spent last week at the Behavioral Safety Now (BSN) Conference (www.behavioralsafetynow.com) where I was reminded of a simple fact:To change culture you have to rely on our culture.

Indeed, safety leaders (corporate, site, and team leaders) at BSN and other conferences are hungry for information, best-practices, and tools. While they get these from keynotes, consultants, and non-profits like the Cambridge Center (www.behavior.org), what I see is that the best source of information is spread professional-to-professional; in sessions where companies share their practices and during the breaks where colleagues chat about their shared challenges. 

Our safety community should work hard to build and protect a larger culture of sharing…one in which, each week, we are on the phone or e-mail with someone at another company, eager to help.

In fact, you can do that right now!
